House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)56%suggested Tuesday night that he could reach for the Republican presidential nomination during a contested convention in Cleveland.

“You know, I haven’t given any thought to this stuff,” Ryan told CNBC Tuesday. “People say, ‘What about the contested convention?’ I say, well, there are a lot of people running for president. We’ll see. Who knows.”

Ryan acknowledged that people are talking to him about how he could get the nomination at a brokered convention where un-pledged delegates can ignore the results of their states’ primaries once the first convention ballot is taken.
